Hi I'm Jessie

I'm a mom of four beautiful children, wife of one awesome husband and we live in hot Arizona in the USA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time mom of four children. Three beautiful girls and one super cute little boy. They are my whole life. My husband works hard to provide for us all. We love him. We just moved to a very nice home and I am busy making it a bit of heaven on earth. I want my kids to be well rounded and so we do many different activities, like family night, scripture study, school, music, dance, and just playing with friends and family. I love to read, scrapbook, make cards, decorating my new home and cooking. Both my husband and I are blessed with wonderful parents and are lucky to live close by them and most of our siblings. So our kids have lots of cousins they get to play with and know.

Why I am a Mormon

I am lucky that I was brought up in the church. My parents taught me and my 7 siblings the gospel of Jesus Christ and always set a perfect example to us all. When I was a teenager I thought I would try doing things "my own way" and had a really hard time in life and just wasn't happy. I found that living the principals of the gospel of Jesus Christ, that it made we truly happy. My little brother drowned when he was only 3 years old. He was the baby of the family. I was 7 years old. I am so glad I have the knowledge of the plan of salvation and I know that if I live the gospel and endure to the end, I will live with him again in Heaven. That is what I want, to be with all my family forever. When I am living the right way and have the spirit with me, there's no greater feeling. When I read from the Book of Mormon, I know that it is true and can feel it in my heart. When I hear beautiful music, or see something beautiful on earth or see my beautiful children happy, I can feel my Heaven on earth. I want my children to grow up in the church so that they will be able to make smart choices in life, and make choices that will make them happy. I am a mormon because I want to be and because it makes me truly happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday. Me and my husband wake up early so we can get everyone ready and out the door by 7:55am. Thats hard to do with making sure everyone looks their best, hair done, clothes clean and ironed. But we do it. We read from the scriptures in the mornings and start and end each day with family prayer. I am on the Relief Society committee, and help with that as best I can. I have my children attend any primary activities they have. I also am in the ward choir, I love to sing. That is so fun, because you feel the spirit so strong through music. I am a visiting teacher and visit my sisters often so we become friends. I love going to the temple. I go as often as I can. I try to be a good example to my children and others and try live like Jesus.
